Affordable Color Laser Printers

And they come with both the right price and size. People take a surprisingly long time to realize it. The QMS ColorScript Laser 1000 was the first desktop color laser which released by QMS in 1993. The price was a breakthrough at $12,500 compared to $40,000 or so for other color lasers at that time. It has taken 15 years from the first expensive and bulky color laser to nowadays the personal color laser.

Especially the weights for low-end lasers are ranging from 50- to 75-pound.
